      The most peaceful place on earth
      Wow wow and wow!! We did a one day tour of the country side in Poland. What a fabulous tour and tour guide. Our guide took us to a famous wood carver to learn how to carve wood, a couples house up in the hills to bake bread in their wood burning stove in their kitchen. We ground our own wheat into flour and they also served us lunch. I consider these hills the most peaceful place on earth! Just to see how these people have lived off the land for all these years is so beautiful. What a wonderful unforgettable day we had!

      Fantastic hike with Matt
      Here's a polished version of your review: My solo tour experience with Matt was exceptional. Despite not feeling my best that day, Matt tailored the trek to my pace. He prioritized safety and adjusted the itinerary wisely to account for potential weather challenges. Thanks to Matt's guidance, I thoroughly enjoyed the hike and would highly recommend it. I look forward to booking future hikes with him in Krakow.

      Painted Houses- Great Experience!
      Our guide, Matthew, helped make this a wonderful experience. He was easy to talk to and answered all of our questions. We saw beautiful countryside and enjoyed the painted houses. It would have been very difficult to do this on our own. Matthew had relationships with some of the home owners. It felt like a very personalized experience. We highly recommend this tour.

      Not worth the money
      Was not what I expected, tlrwadimg theiugh the description and the 'what to expect ' tab ,it is obviously referring to the salt mines but never having been on this trip I was unaware. I booked it as,it said a disabled car adapted would take you underground and I expected the tour to use one, fortunately my disabled partner never came on the trip, it was a small museum under the market place that the guide spent an hour and half talking through all the displays, my partner would not have been able to be in his feet for this time. It was also one of those tours that you really didn't need a guide for. All the exhibitions had multi language displays, and just walking through, you got the gist of it. I feel that had the information been correct, I would not have booked this tour through an operator but paid to go alone. £80 for 4 people is all for this museum

      Unique and beautiful cultural experience
      Want to experience something totally unique and feel the culture of tradition combined with lovely countryside? This is the tour for you. Our guide Mathew (Maciej Szymoniak) was exceptional. We had the pleasure of traveling on the Eagle Nest Castle tour earlier in the week and were thrilled to be with him again. We met people, saw the insides of their homes and experienced a very heartwarming and beautiful tradition. Everywhere we went we were warmly welcomed. It is clear Poland Active has invested in getting to know the people and their families. We were so glad we booked this tour. It is something even as well traveled individuals that we have never experienced before. Very special and beautiful.

      Absolutely stellar tour from start to finish
      This was an absolute highlight or our trip to Poland. Matthew (Maciek Szymoniak) really tailored this trip to our interests and pace. He quickly realized my husband's love of photography and made sure he took us to the best spots for the best pictures. We were amazed at his ability to know exactly where to be and when to have the best experience at each and every castle. They were all so different and we had not only beautiful visual experiences but wonderful commentary about the history, the people and the places. Do not hesitate one moment to book this tour be it for the beauty or the learning. Oh, and have to mention that we traveled in absolute comfort. We also booked the Zlipie villages tour and honestly after our experience, we know who to contact to experience all the facets of Poland - Poland Active!

      Brilliant day. Enjoyed by all generations of the family. Great experience. Amazing scenery. Would recommend. Only issue was we were put on a raft with no English speaking guide. However, we managed OK with the help of another visitor

      Exceptional and memorable!
      This is an exceptional tour of the wooden churches, traditional in the Malopolska region once! The tour started promptly at the agreed time with hotel pick-up. The guide asked us about the pace of the tour, explaining that we could see up to 8-9 churches if desired, the minimum being 4-5. We like wooden churches very much and chose to see as many as possible, and what a treat! These churches are unique and have beautiful histories attached to them! Most of them could be visited inside with their guide (who waited for us promptly when we arrived) or an audioguide. Everything was very well planned, and the overall pace of the trip was perfect, not rushed. We also had one hour for lunch at a lovely village restaurant; I recommend trying Polish traditional dishes there. Our guide, Maciej was excellent, knowledgeable, and went beyond the call of duty to make our tour enjoyable! Everything was very well organized, allowing us to make the best of our trip and see everything we wanted to see! The landscapes along the way are unique, too! Highly recommended tour that has an excellent guide! Thank you, Maciej/Matthew!

      Fantastic Castle Tours
      A brilliant day touring some amazing locations in a beautiful country! Everything occurred in a timely fashion, which was impressive due to the number of stops we made at 5 castles and additional places of interest such as the viewpoint onto the Błędów desert. Our guide was very informative and helpful, both in taking us around the locations and giving us time to explore for ourselves. Everything was tailored to our requirements, with adjustments made in the order of stops to ensure that we were not caught out in the rain. An overall fantastic experience that I can highly recommend!

      Wonderful FD Tour seeing Historic Castles: “MUST DO”
      My wife and I booked an Eagles’ Nest Trail Tour from Krakow with Maciej (Matthew). It exceeded our expectations. Our driver and guide (Maciej) provided us with a comfortable drive from site to site and once there he guided us through them. His knowledge of each castle and/or ruin was extensive and he offered us narratives as we drove to reach the next location to be visited. He was exceptionally friendly with a full command of English and was quite capable of answering any and all questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him and can without reservation recommend his trip to anyone wishing to see these incredible sites within easy reach from Krakow.

      Breathtaking tour of Ojców
      This was an amazing tour. We were picked up at our apartment and driven to the Parc. One of us had a walking handicap and the tour guide accommodated is the best he could, which was kind of him. We first entered the park and first took a tour of the King Łokietek’s Cave. We then visited an old medival castle ruins. We took a break for lunch in the valley where we visited the trout farm and had the most amazing lunch of pierogies and pizza. We had a wonderful local blonde beer to help quench our thirst! After lunch we took a brief tour of the natural museum located in the valley. After that we have our way to the main castle and the Hercules club. Along the drive we saw beautiful landscapes and breathtaking views. Despite more walking than expected, it was a wonderful trip and definitely worth making the stop. Shout out to our guide Maciej who made the experience a standout!

      Amazing trip to Zalipie
      Our day with Maciej was a highlight of our trip to Poland. Active Poland was easy to communicate with and I booked our trip before we left Canada. We were picked up right on time and Maciej drove the hour and a half to Zalipie. We never could have done this trip on our own. He knew where all of the unique painted houses were located and had a good relationship with the owners. He was knowledgable in the areas history and spoke excellent English. I would book another trip with Poland Active at any chance. Also ask Macicj to stop for delicious waffles.

    Transport was online and contact via WhatsApp was reliable.

    Was in a “small group” tour but had 30 people in. The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable. Stopped at lots of check points to discuss the history and signpost parts of the mine. Being in a group with 30 made it difficult sometimes to see and hear the tour guide but was okay. Mixture of ages and abilities, so some who struggled to walk stairs and for long duration struggled.

    I would emphasise that this tour is a lot of walking and listening. Young children who came with family were very disruptive due to being bored and unstimulated. There was hundreds of steps down and then long tunnels to walk through.

    It is amazing that people manually excavated to a depth of over 300 meters below ground in what you would call a labyrinth of tunnels and vast chamber's at extreme hight too. The structure is wondrous. I will not say what has been created at the depths on several levels as it will spoil visitors going to see such feet’s achieved. By the way you walk down but come back up in one of the original mine lifts, so don’t panic.
    Well worth the visit. Just to let visitors know there is restoration work going on at the extreme depth. I was allowed and other tourists, with a guide down to 165 meters.

    Spectacular place to visit but be prepared for a staircase descent of 400 steps. It goes in a square spiral. The lift back up is interesting - they squeeze (quite literally) 9 of you in to a cage.

    Whilst visiting Krakow I highly reccomended taking the walking tour of the salt mine. I was not to bothered about going but really glad I went. This is a 2 hour tour which explores various chambers within the mine. It is accessible to most as one of our party is partially sighted.(allowed to use the lift) It does however have many steps (managable) and no problem. I will not spoil it by telling you what you see but this is well worth the visit.

    Can be a little rushed

    Very informative and knowledgeable guide. Ask for the appropriate head set at the beginning of the tour. They predominantly use a single in ear ear piece. However they have a small selection of over ear headphones. There's lots of walking (obviously!) so bring your pedometer!!! Well worth the walk.
